Alone the color triggers the "Find-me-cool-reflex" from me. Deep dark amber shimmers out of the glass and there they are, the dark berries and strong sherry aromas. Sweet roasted aromas and dark berries start the first impression, sweet orange slices and velvety peach follow the complex nose. The initially tart fruit and wood tones are creamier and softer, a touch of leather rises from sweet milk chocolate, hazelnuts are discreetly in the background. Timidly shows a sweet tobacco note, but this is at the same time again covered in creamy milk chocolate. The leather aroma is intensified and a very fine sulfur note shows up. Toasted aromas, sweet chocolate and fruit play together, here and there spicy and tart wood tones are revealed. The alcohol is amazingly mild and harmoniously tied.
Spicy wood elements mix briefly with sweet berries. Creamy chocolate flows over the tongue and leaves a subtle burning sharpness on the tongue. Dark berries, cocoa powder and harsh wood tones follow before the sharpness in the form of wood and black pepper flares up again briefly and spreads warm and plump on the palate. Freshly brewed espresso and creamy whole milk exude an interesting aroma, a slightly tart leather note lies discreetly in the background. Tart tobacco and sour cherries rise, followed by leather, chocolate and tobacco ...
Creamy and relatively mild rest the mild yet spicy sherry and woody aromas in the mouth. Here and there are again the sour cherries and bitter tobacco notes, the tart leather penetrates through the milk chocolate. The sharpness, still resting on the tongue, unfolds its voluminous power and strength again shortly before the end of the after-sound. With this combination of gentleness and a certain basic acuity, the wonderful aromas then slowly dissipate.
